An Unsuccessful Round 8

After shinning with 2 podium finishes in round 7 on Saturday, Renezeder was expecting a successful day on Sunday but ended up disappointed finishing positions 10 and 7 in the Pro-2 and Pro-4 categories. In the pro-2 category, Renezeder started in position 4 and had a pretty good run until his right front trailing arm flew off the chassis. This dashed Renezeder hopes of getting the first place finish and he had to settle for the 10th position by the end of the race.

In the Pro-4 category, Renezeder started well and even managed to hold the first position for six laps. This quickly changed on turn 4 as he almost rolled when he got up on two wheels. He recovered from this glitch and was regaining lost ground before his rear suspension was damaged. In the end, he finished 7th in this category.

Round 7 and 8 had mixed results for Renezeder, but in the end, he had 2 podium finishes that put him and his sponsors, KMC Wheels, back on the map.
